 Registration Process

Saint Petersburg Campus

Pre-requisite: If you are attempting to register for a course and have not completed the required prerequisite course with appropriate grade or have high enough standardized test scores to be eligible to take requested course. If you think you have met the prerequisite, please fill out Registration Error Form

Co-requisite: This is commonly seen in science courses which require separate laboratory registration. If you have passed either the lecture or lab and need to take one by itself, please fill out Registration Error Form

College/Field of Study Restriction: Some courses are reserved for students with a specific major or who are admitted into a specific college. If the course requested is required for your current major, please fill out Registration Error Form

Class Restriction:  Courses reserved for students who are part of a specific class standing.  Class standings are based on credit hours earned: Freshmen (0-29), Sophomore (30-59), Junior (60-89), and Seniors (90+).

Permits: Permits are not to be confused with the above error types.  Students that need a permit for a course should request the permit via email from the instructor of the course. For example, this could be an internship course or a study abroad course. Consult the Faculty Directory for email address. The email should include the student’s U-number and the CRN (Course Reference Number).

Closed Section: Closed section overrides are overrides that are issued to students which allow them to enroll in courses that are already at maximum enrollment capacity. These are issued with instructor permission, and can only be granted if a classroom has not reached its maximum fire code capacity. If you are a student wishing to obtain this override, please email the instructor of record. Consult the Faculty Directory for email address. Include your U-number and the 5-digit CRN (Course Reference Number). If approved, the faculty member should then request the override from the respective Academic Program Specialist.

Transient Form 
(through floridashines.org)
USF Students who take courses at another accredited institution of higher learning are considered "Transient" students. To receive approval and confirmation of how those courses will transfer back to USF, you will need to complete the online Florida Shines Transient form. USF students are expected to complete their coursework at USF. Students who wish to request to take courses at another institution must submit the online Transient form prior to registering for courses at another institution. Students should use the comment section of the online form to explain the purpose of taking coursework at another institution. To be eligible for approval, the courses you are requesting to take at another institution must meet the following criteria:
Course(s) must be necessary for graduation in current declared major. This can include courses which are prerequisite courses necessary to take other major required courses. -and-
Either: (a) Course(s) are not available at USF and are academically necessary to be taken this semester. This can include courses not offered at USF this semester, courses which are full at USF this semester, or courses which overlap with another required course. -or-(b) Student has an uncontrollable, necessary, and documentable reason which prevents the student from being available to take courses at USF.

S/U Contract : Please use S/U Contract Form if you wish to take a course in exchange for an "S" (Satisfactory) or "U" (Unsatisfactory) grade. It is considered an agreement between you and the professor and does not need to be submitted to any university office. Simply have the professor sign and make a copy for each other. "S/U" grading does not affect your GPA at all, however, understand that an S/U grade will not satisfy the following requirements:

  • Gordon Rule
  • General Education Course Requirements
  • USF's BA Foreign Language Requirement

Check with your advisor to find out whether certain classes can be taken "S/U". This form is available in the department offering the course

Overload Request

Students are allowed to take a maximum number of 18 credit hours per semester in the fall and spring and 14 credit hours in the summer. If you wish to go over that amount of credit hours, you will need to complete this online form.

Time Conflict

Sometimes courses may have times that overlap and OASIS will not let you register for them. Only in rare circumstances will USF permit students to register for courses that are scheduled to meet at the same time or overlapping times. Examples can include:

2 courses required for graduation, last semester for the student, and one starts at the same time as the other one ends
1 course has a required common exam time which students only need to attend 4 or fewer times throughout the semester
To request a time conflict exception, you will need to complete the above online form. Time Conflict forms cannot be submitted prior to registration or after registration is over.

Time Conflict requests must be processed through the college with professor approval. Response time to your request will vary based on the availability of faculty member. If you have not received a response in 1 week (5 business days), then it is recommended that you follow up with the faculty members for their feedback.
